With the start of school, my days are looking a bit different. Thankfully they will be a bit easier than last school year. No longer will I have to meet a bus four times a day. Yes, that alone makes one’s day a lot easier. This year, I will only have to meet it three times. 🙂 The one meeting time we lost was the one right before lunch. Meaning? Lunch shouldn’t be rushed like last year. Also, since I will be hanging out in front of my house three times a day, the little jobs there will be taken care of 5 – 10 minutes at a time. The bushes will finally be trimmed.
As I am currently waiting for a bus, I am going to keep this post pretty simple and get right to my goals for this week:
- Fix the toilet’s handle. (not a gardening related goal, but a needed one.)
- Paint the ceiling of the porch.
- Paint the door on the porch.
- Treat plants for powdery mildew.
- Obtain and can remaining tomatoes needed for crushed tomatoes.
- Keep up with laundry.
That’s it. With changing my routine, and the kids’, I think it will also be enough. I am giving myself the next two weeks to finish the porch, its ceiling and all related railings and doors. It should be enough, if I make it THE priority in the afternoons. Tomorrow though, I plan on getting that haircut I have needed for the past three months. I’ll make painting THE priority beginning Wednesday. 🙂
